There's a HUGE difference. If the rokits are in your budget, you can pass right over the AV40s. They're the ABSOLUTE bottom level that anyone should monitor on. Rokits will last you a long time, mine...

Well, where is there a 1/4" out on the amp? That's probably the issue is that whatever you're using to get out of the amp isn't meant for this sort of recording application.

Good for live vocals, not so good for 'keeper' studio vocals. I run scratch vocals with mine all the time, though. People will disagree, like always, but I'd recommend against it.

Yeah, that will work. It looks like your mixer only supports 8 channels via ADAT but that's still better than two analog outputs.
